    • Opening Narration: Walton's Mountain meant many things to my family. It was a source of food, for we took game from its forests and fish from its streams. It was a refuge in time of trouble and a link with the history of our family's past. And once it became the setting for a race that none of us would ever forget.

    • Closing Narration: That sense of pride and confidence that my mother and father instilled in us as a family was shaken occasionally. But in all, it stood us in very good stead. When we left Walton's Mountain and went to make our way in the larger world, we were always able to fall back on those rich and true feelings that we learnt as children.
